Help Support Co-op Development

On May 5-6, the Give Big WA event will happen. This is an annual event similar to #GivingTuesday that highlights Washington non-profits and helps them raise funds to continue their mission

I am engaging in a peer-to-peer campaign as well and hoping that 49 people who appreciate the co-op movement, or maybe just like reading my posts on this blog will join me with a $10 donation! So far, I have raised $55 towards my $500 goal. If you donate before the 5th, then our numbers will show up on the page with other early donations on May 5th.

Northwest Cooperative Development Center is hoping to raise $25,000 on this event. Anything from $10-$25,000 will be appreciated!

You don’t have to donate to my page, you can give directly to the NWCDC Page . Those numbers won’t show up until May 5th when the event begins. I would love to see NWCDC get to 10-20% of its goal by May 5th.

Almost everyone I know has benefited from either a co-op or a credit union and these organizations succeed when they do two things: engage with the cooperative community and obtain co-op specific technical assistance. When the pandemic ends, the hard work of rebuilding our economy will begin–in fact it is already starting! Organizations such as NWCDC will be vital to building a resilient economic community. Please join me (and Chuck, Cathy, Kristy)!
